I have a spoiled rotten,10 yr old neutered male Shih Tzu, named Kuro. He's also blind, but still my sweet baby!Although it's only him and me now, there's a lot of talking around our house. I didn't realize he knows so many words! Some people say it's repetition, but I prefer to think he's that smart.......
We moved to Michigan from Indiana 4 years ago, and for the first 7 years of Kuro's life, the only expense I had was vaccinations, grooming,and buying toys. ( Lots of toys)
But time passes on and age starts taking a toll, and he started having problems: bladder, tumor on paw,liver enzymes too high, dental work, eye problems,and for the past few months, skin problems.
Dr. Dhaliwal has done all of Kuro's surgeries, and worked with me on the other problems. He never loses his patience, and stays calm while I am asking my 100 questions .
Dr. Dhaliwal is definitely in the correct profession. It seems he has a passion for not only helping animals, but he takes every opportunity to learn new techniques so he can help them even more.
The staff is also very nice. They greet you with a smile, take the time to talk, explain meds,etc. and if Dr. D. doesn't call to check on Kuro after a procedure, the staff will, and that means a lot to me.
Michigan Avenue Animal Hospital is a caring place, and everyone makes sure your pet is given the best care. Whatever it takes to make you and your pet "HAPPY!"
Ava was spotted by a Good Samaritan lying by the side of the road with an injured leg. Knowing the humane society had a vet on staff they drove her there hoping she would get the medical care she needed and deserved while waiting for her family to find her.
10 days later a friend of the family that dropped this little girl off at the humane society called to let them know that her family never called for her and she was going to be put down at 10:00 AM. Read More......
About two weeks ago I brought my english bulldog puppy(Oscar) in to see Dr. Dhaliwal. Since having been turned away by numerous vets because no one wanted to perfrom the surgery on my little puppy Oscar because of little to no experience with a salivary gland surgery. Dr. Dhaliwal has done this type of surgery before and was able to help Oscar. His staff was very kind and courteous and treated Oscar as if he was their puppy. I wanted to say thanks for everything and I would without a doubt be coming here for any of Oscar's veterinary needs. Anthony Mach December 2012.

A few months ago my prized bird hunting dog/family pet tore her Achilles tendon, after many phone calls and a lot of research I was directed to Dr. Dhaliwal. The surgery went great, my dog's leg was in a cast and I kept her in a 6' x 6' pen most of the day for about 6 weeks to allow healing. Following the protocol for this surgery is extremely important, and I'm glad I did. 6 weeks after Bella's cast was removed, I was able to take her out for a short training session in the field and she performed exactly as well as she did prior to her accident. I am so grateful to now see her healing so well! Dr Dhaliwal guided me through every stage of the healing process which was a great help, the staff always treated me very kindly during the many follow-up's with the recasts. I must say Michigan Avenue Animal Hospital is the neatest, cleanest and nicest vet. hospital I have visited too. I have had several hunting dogs over 20 years with many unfortunate veterinary visits, without a doubt I will not go anywhere else for any serious issue for my dogs. When your pet needs a serious surgery, having things go as smooth as possible is PRICELESS! Thanks to much Dr, Dhaliwal
I would like to sincerely thank Dr. Dhaliwal and his staff for the excellent care they have all provided to my Lena. I've been bringing Lena to Dr. Dhaliwal since I got her as a baby. Lena was so terrified of men that she just shook when she first met him. He soon won her over with his calm, gentle demeanor however. Now all I have to do is say his name and she runs straight to the door ready to go see him.
Recently Dr. Dhaliwal saved Lena's life. She was diagnosed with a large lung tumor. After taking her to two specialists who said they could perform the surgery charging an astronomical fee, Dr. Dhaliwal offered to perform the surgery at a quarter of what they were asking! This was the only way I would be able to reasonably afford to help my baby. At first I balked because I just couldn't stand the thought of possibly losing Lena on the operating table. Dr. Dhaliwal was patient with me and allowed me the time to make the decision for myself. He didn't push at all, just told me to call when I was ready. Well, once I made the decision he was ready. He and Colleen were so kind when I dropped her off. They let me take my time with her.
The surgery was a success, and Lena is now home. Everybody was so kind and supportive. I can't say enough good things about this practice. Dr. Dhaliwal is sincerely interested in helping families who could not otherwise afford expensive surgeries for their pets. But they are also awesome with the everyday matters! The best vet ever!
Thank you so much Dr. Dhaliwal!

My English Setter, Ellie is a cancer survivor and "tripawd" since her amputation due to Osteosarcoma in July 2012. She has done remarkably well, all because of the care she has received at MAAH. Any time I have needed to have her or my Pug seen, it has always been the same day, working around my work hours. I have never been more satisfied with care for my pets and at reasonable cost. I owe a lot to Dr. Dhaliwal and his staff.
Ellie and Bubba
My family and I bought Rex in for a second opinion. Rex was taken to his then primary vet and the prognosis was not good. We were not given a lot of information and left the vet feeling very uneasy and uniformed. We bought Rex here and we saw Dr. Dhaliwal. The time spent with Dr. Dhaliwal was amazing. Dr. Dhaliwal took x-rays, a urinalysis, and a blood test during our visit. My family and I were given information about Rex's condition and several options. Dr. Dhaliwal took time to explain his findings, allowed us to ask questions and gave us time to digest the information, and ask questions again. Our family felt like our emotions mattered and Dr. Dhaliwal understood our bond and love for Rex. Our visit was not rushed and he did not make us rush into a decision concerning our baby boy. We left feeling informed and more importantly, like Rex was loved and not just another number for that day.
The Currie Family
On March 23, 2012 I picked up my brand new hyperactive 8 week-old Maltipoo puppy. Shortly after bringing her home she fell and injured herself. I immediately took her to the local animal hospital, where she received X rays and it was determined that she had broken her back right tibia, and would need to have surgery, to repair the bone. The hospital informed me that the surgery would be between $2,500 to $3,000. I was devastated by the news that not only was my brand new puppy in extreme pain but I may not be able to afford the cost of her surgery.
Feeling hopeless about her situation I called my normal vet to schedule an appointment for a second opinion. I was originally told that the second opinion appointment would be free, given the circumstance, and then later called back by the vet tech and informed the appointment would actually cost me around $70.00 in addition to shots and boarding costs. This would not have normally been a problem if I had not just spent roughly $500.00 at the animal hospital the night before. I went ahead and scheduled the appointment anyways, feeling like I had no viable options.
